I have some kind of issue with the TPMS in my 2003 330XI where I can not successfully reset the yellow light. When re setting, normally, the light should turn red and then disappear. In my case, it stays yellow and then disappears for maybe 5-10 minutes and then comes back again and stays on. I went to independent BMW specialist who replaced the main unit and then checked everything else and could not find the problem why it would not reset. he says every component works correctly but the light is still on.
It is very annoying to have it on all the time and I would love to fix it.
Anyone who has experienced it or knows something about it - please HELP!!!! I really appreciate your attention.
BTW... I am in North NJ and if you know of a shop that can help - please let me know.
Thank you in advance!

First off, if you love BMW automobiles, then you love Bimmers.
Beemers are BMW motorcycles.
As for your tire pressure issue, your car detects a tire with low air pressure by monitoring the ABS sensors; if one tire begins to turn at a much slower rate the system activates the low tire pressure light. It sounds like your BMW "expert" simply threw parts at the problem. Do you have one tire with considerably more -or less- miles on it than the other tires? That could very well be the cause of the problem.

Can you kindly reference this information from BMW for 2006 so I can show it to my mechanic...

Thanks for the note. No, my tires are all the same and the issue is actually is with resetting itself. So, it comes back up even when I do nt drive... Just let it sit for a little while when engine is on.
I kind of know that he threw the parts at it and my problem is still not fixed.
